As an administrator, I want to allow only a subset of users to assign categories (or vocabularies) to assets (e.g. Web Content articles). This should not impact regular user's ability to view content filtered by that category (or vocabulary) through the Asset Publisher (AP).
Company News are displayed through an Asset Publisher. They are filtered through a category "company news". Only a subset of editors (e.g. the internal communications department) should be able to assign the category, but all users should be able to see the company news in the Asset Publisher.
Today, categories only have the "view" permission. If the user has no view permission for the category "company news", the Asset Publisher will not display the items.
Add a new "Assign" permission to categories / vocabularies that controls the ability to assign it to assets.
Two of our customers have this requirement and (to my knowledge) there's no elegant workaround available.
